“The Bad Intentions” named Peru’s candidate for Oscar race

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Peruvian Minister of Culture announced that Rosario Garcia Montero’s dark coming-of-age story The Bad Intentions will be the country’s candidate for the Foreign Oscar race, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Starring Fatima Buntinx and Katerina D’Onofrio, The Bad Intentions is set in 1980s Peru, and tells the story of 8-year-old Cayetana, a well-off girl who learns her mother is pregnant and believes the coming of a new sibling to the family will result in her imminent death. The obscure story is set against a time of political turmoil in Peru, when terrorism began to affect everyday life in Lima.

Garcia Montero’s first film won best Peruvian film at the Lima International Film Festival, and best Latin American film in Mar del Plata fest last year.

Peru previously made it to the Foreign Oscar nominations in 2009, with Claudia Llosa’s The Milk of Sorrow.
